Summit Workshops
Stay Tuned for Summit Workshop Announcements!

MTUG's workshop RFP has formally ended (although we accept ideas all year round! more on that below).

Some of the tentative topics we think you'll enjoy include: security breaches and APT attack vectors, organizational mindfulness in tech, collaboration tools, devops!, managed services, IT risk frameworks, innovative anywhere-printing on campus, and much more!

MTUG especially promotes presentations featuring "end-user" IT professionals (technology implementers working for non-tech-sales companies), while they present first hand experiences with specific technologies or challenges.

Thank you to ALL our Workshop RFP submitters! We will be contacting all workshop submitters between the end of March and mid April.

Workshop Ideas Accepted ALL YEAR LONG! MTUG has webinars and short "Peers & Beers" presentations most months from August through April each year. We decide the next year's schedule beginning in June. You are welcome to submit a proposal now and we'll review it for our monthly programs as well (just ignore the deadlines) -- plus, if we do have a cancellation, we may contact you for presenting at MTUG2019.
